It’s really annoyingly, that the tool is not completely working in case the Automation Engine version is lower than 10.0.6. Unfortunately it’s because of a bug, so there is no simple trick to get it working completely.
However, in case of some SQLI should not be performed during the check, they can be renamed. The tool doesn’t run SQLIs with a different object name prefix than “CYCK”.
In the following example2 SQLIs were renamed to “OUT.OF.ACTION_CYCK…”, so they were skipped during the check:
Maybe this can help to get the tool running – rename SQLIs which causes the WP crash.
There is not additional description for the tool. The tool itself uses regular object and functions, which are described in the documentation anyhow.
It is recommended to use the tool tougher or in parallel with the upgrade documentation: https://docs.automic.com/documentation/webhelp/english/AWA/12.0/DOCU/12.0/AWA%20Guides/help.htm#AWA/Installation/install_upgrade_v10.htm%3FTocPath%3DInstallation%2520Guide%7CInstalling%2520the%2520Automation%2520Engine%7CUpgrade%2520Installation%7C_____4
The “Check Incompatibilities between Versions …” sections on this page can be used as description and guideline for the results given by the tool.
For example:More information about the SQLI “CYCK.SQLI.GET_VAR.RECURSIVE.RESOLUTION” with object title “11.1 - GET_VAR does not resolve recursively anymore.” can be found at section “3. Check Incompatibilities between Version 10 and11.1” on the page mentioned above:
Hopefully this helps a little bit.

currently all v11.x and v12.x versions.
Matrix shows the dependencies of Package Manager and Automation Engine.
Here an example:
Package Manger version 3.0 requires Automation Engine 12.1:https://docs.automic.com/tools/compatibility_matrix?compatibility-mode=component&offering_version_id=components&lifecycle_entity_id=1411489691490&version_id=1494507772867
there is some description within the package and some in this discussion.
Hallo HolgerMundhahsVTG ,
Ich denke wir sind in diesem Thread jetzt off topic.
Wenn Sie Problem mit dem Package Manager, dann bitte in
einer passenden Diskussion hier im Forum behandeln oder ein Ticket beim Support
Ich kann nur sagen, dass ich das Package runterladen konnte
und dann mit PM v2 und v3 laden konnte.
